It seems every year from early October to January the world of food media becomes very predictable. First comes all the Halloween treat shows. Next we get to ponder how Gourmet, Food & Wine and the others are going to photograph the turkey on the cover this year. Now we are into the full month of Christmas in XXX and 8000 easy cookie recipes on Food TV. I'm sure Gala New Years Eve entertaining specials can't be far behind either.
And now my local PBS stations are having a pledge drive so most of the weekend food shows are preempted for Suze Orman, and Doo Wop concerts.
I'm not a Scrooge and I realize some of the programing is appropriate...I'm just asking for a little variety. Haven't these topics been done to death?
